Anglesey Foster Care Association are a group of dedicated Anglesey Foster carers who aim to bring happiness and community inclusion through positive shared experiences for looked after children in Anglesey. Many of our children have been unsettled by the traumas of neglect and/or being removed from their families/friends and area in which they once lived. On some occasions they have to endure school change and loss of their established friendships, while trying to adjust to a positive though unfamiliar environment.

Our charity focuses on providing distraction to their fears, activities to encourage inclusion and new friendships, and happiness to replace sorrow. Our prime aim is to promote a feeling of being cared about and valued. This in turn encourages them to settle, cope with life’s trials and tribulations and to gain the self worth and courage needed to succeed to their best capabilities.

Erlas Victorian Walled Garden is both a Charity and a place. Over 14 years, a forgotten and neglected area of land, has been transformed into a productive and therapeutic area, where many disadvantaged adults, mainly those with learning disabilities, have been able to gain skills, forge friendships and maintain and improve upon their mental and physical well-being.

27 beneficiaries access the gardens each week and half attend classes in art, sewing, basic skills, healthy lifestyles, horticulture and conservation, which are delivered by volunteers. Others work in the gardens; the glass house and polytunnel; growing produce from seed which is harvested in the autumn.

Maintaining the nature trails, orchard; wildlife ponds and clearing a 6 hectare Victorian Arboretum keeps everyone busy. 45 volunteers also help, although a quarter need support and guidance, including those with dementia, autism and the physically disabled. Young supported learning students from 2 colleges attend weekly; and participate in gardening activities as they consider future careers and living independently. Undergraduate students gain workplace experience too. Armed forces veterans and young offenders also volunteer as they rebuild their lives. The wider community and local interest groups learn about our unique biodiversity and heritage through presentations and Open Events. Produce from the gardens and hand-crafted goods are sold to contribute to our sustainability, with beneficiaries’ involvement.

The North Wales Women’s Centre is a safe place for women to access information, support, advocacy and training on issues relating to health, wellbeing, and work. Established in 2001, the Centre operates from West Rhyl (the 2nd highest ranked ward on the Index of Deprivation in Wales) and to date has provided services to over 4000 women. Women who attend the centre are mainly from the Rhyl and Denbighshire areas, and there is also an outreach service where support is provided on a one to one basis to referred women from across the county and the North Wales Coast. In addition there is a weekly drop in service provided to women in HMP Styal who are returning home from prison to North Wales.

We support women from the age of 16 upwards, many presenting with problems associated with areas of deprivation including high levels of unemployment and poverty rates, health inequalities and low educational attainment. Women can self refer or are referred to us from agencies. They come to access help for their problems, build their self confidence and learn new skills in an environment that encourages socialising supportiveness dignity and respect. The centre is a thriving community of women enjoying activities and supporting each other. Volunteering is also a key activity at the centre with a team of approximately 40 volunteers helping us to deliver the activities.

The Neuro Therapy Centre is unique; its the only centre of it’s kind in the region & since 1985 has supported people with long term neurological conditions including MS, Parkinson’s & MND. This group is hugely disadvantaged – there is very little NHS support & what little there is can generally only be accessed directly after diagnosis. After that individuals have to find their own way to deal with the huge physical & emotional challenges ahead, at a time when they’re likely to be at a low & at their most vulnerable.
